beginning

A Quote by Walt Whitman on beginning, clarity, death, joy, life, and soul

Joy, shipmate, joy! (Pleased to my soul at death I cry), Our life is closed, our life begins, The long, long anchorage we leave, The ship is clear at last, she leaps! She swiftly courses from the shore, Joy, shipmate, joy!

Walt Whitman (1819 - 1892)

A Quote by Viktor E. Frankl on beginning, mind, and wives

But my mind clung to my wife's image, imagining it with an uncanny acuteness. I heard her answering me, saw her smile, her frank and encouraging look. Real or not, her look then was more luminous than the sun which was beginning to rise.

Viktor Frankl (1905 - 1997)

A Quote by Victor Marie Hugo on beginning, blindness, dawn, day, history, immortality, life, prose, romance, simplicity, songs, traditions, work, and writing

The nearer I approach the end, the clearer I hear around me the immortal symphonies of the worlds which invite me. It is marvelous yet simple. For half a century I have been writing my thoughts in prose, verse, history, drama, romance, tradition, satire, ode and song - I have tried all; but I feel that I have not said a thousandth part of that which is in me. When I go down to the grave I can say like many others, "I have finished my day's work" but I cannot say, "I have finished my life's work"; my day's work will begin the next morning. The tomb is not a blind alley. It is an open thoroughfare. It closes in the twilight to open in the dawn. My work is only beginning; my work is hardly above its foundation. I would gladly see it mounting forever. The thirst for the infinite proves infinity.

A Quote by unknown on beginning, day, learning, opportunity, people, present, time, and work

A great lesson, which people should learn, is to do their work at the beginning of the day when they have the time before them, instead of at the end of the day when most of the time is gone beyond recall. If we wait, our opportunities may be gone; the present is the hour for improving privileges which, once gone, will return no more.

A Quote by unknown on beginning, hope, impossibility, sage, and work

As an important project was begun, a bishop quoted an ancient sage as saying: If our thoughts and hopes are elsewhere, it is impossible for us to set our faces steadily toward the work required of us.

A Quote by unknown on beginning, day, good, and life

The Essence of a New Day This is the beginning of a new day. You have been given this day to use as you will. You can waste it or use it for good. What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it. When tomorrow comes,  this day will be gone forever; in its place is something that you have left behind . . . let it be something good.
